What’s Actually Wrong

What's Actually Wrong In America
What’s Actually Wrong In America

The above cartoon is a nigh-on perfect, and perfectly sarcastic, example of what is actually wrong in America today. In the minds of far too many nothing is exempt from political meaning and allegiance. Nothing.

True, it is far more prevalent among Democrats and their sort with their hate-filled #CancelCulture and TURDS, but Americans these days are prone to the problem as well, just not as much or to the extent that the Left is.

It’s all a sure sign that the government is too big, too invasive, and far too pervasive. It’s also a sign that the 24/7 fake news cycle is pernicious and a clear and present danger to the health of the People and the Nation.

Coronavirus In Context

Coronavirus In Context
Coronavirus In Context

Yes! Let’s put COVID-19 and the Coronavirus in a purely objective context, paired against our more normal and largely here in the West ignored lethal diseases. COVID-19 daily kills 1.85% of what tuberculosis kills and, more significantly here in the West, COVID-19 kills only 5.45% of the seasonal flu kills each and every day during flu season.

Now, I’m not saying to take no precautions whatsoever, I wasn’t even against a short-term lock-down in heavily infected areas, e.g., my own New York City. The lasting panic and resultant “protective measures” enacted by some in government seem ridiculous though – worse than ridiculous, dangerous.

Think of the precedent that’s we’ve allowed being set in that same purely objective context. Does anyone really believe that these same government bodies won’t expand their actions to “combating” the ever-so more lethal seasonal flu, especially if a coronavirus vaccine isn’t in widespread use before flu season starts in approx. 4 months?

Abuse Is Abuse

Abuse Is Abuse - It Doesn't Stop Being Abuse Just Because The Government Does It
Abuse Is Abuse

There’s the thing; we’ve too many people who don’t understand that abuse is abuse, irrespective of where or who it’s coming from. Indeed, what is acceptable for the People to do to each other is often not acceptable for the government to do the People.

Currently, in the context of the various government responses to COVID-19, this easily steps over the line into abuse due to there not being equal protection under the law. Instead, many people are told to stay in Lock-Down while groups and activities favored by certain politicians are exempt from this.

Sadly for the nation, too many people either don’t understand this or don’t care. That makes it hard to enact a solution to the problem.

If People Were Told …

If People Were Told ...
If People Were Told …

While I’m not against all, or even most, of the initial responses to COVID-19, the blind, slavish, eagerness that a lot people showed towards following what were quite destructive and draconian quarantine measures is quite disturbing. Not surprising, but quite disturbing.

And the way you jumped on the social engineering point of this all being to protect others instead of ourselves and branded any dissenters as public enemies, was and is even more disturbing.

Ceded Authority

Now That You’ve Ceded Authority Once…

Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?

You’ve Set A Precedent

You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.

And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.
